My absolute favorite Yes story by far is the time after Topographic Oceans came out and they were touring it and Rick was so fucking bored during the slow solos so one night the keyboard tech under his Hammond asked him what he wanted to eat after the show so he said Curry and then like. Half an hour later the tech started handing him fucking TRAYS OF CURRY and Rick was like Well fuck idk where to put this and I ain’t got shit to do so I might as well just. Eat It so he just put the trays right on top of his keyboards and more than likely made direct eye contact with vegetarian Jon the entire time he ate what a fucking god
Good morning to faerie beings who transcend spacetime, bassists with 6 feet and 4 inches of height and one singular brain cell, vegan guitarists who would lecture you for putting sugar in your own tea, scary jazz drummers who wear their initial on their overalls, dirty old men who are reluctant to play synthesizers, grumpy old wizards who tweet almost exclusively about soup, bowel movements and their cats, drummers who immediately exude strong Dad Friend energy, Swiss spies, adorable manlets who respect their wives, dirty old men who are very good with synthesizers, south africans with accessory spleens, twinks who are so beautiful they don’t look real, The New Guy™️, and singers who are widely hated by people over 50.

Rick Wakeman, mooging about. (Or at least minimooging.)
people who get too into prog vs punk shit imply that prog rock is conservative which i think is pretty funny because a lot of prog rock musicians are activists
